Flinsch debuts on Thinner with a fine monotone clubby dubtech EP, that comes up with four tight groovers, all within the Flinsch trademark atmospheric densities. The opener "Navigator" is a chilly, soulful piece that gently floats within a slowly chilled beat environment. The second piece "Timewind" is a tight minimal groover, whose enlightening Underworld-pads and wave signal transmissions create a mental atmosphere. "Moonfloat", with it's
concrete bassdrum and dreamy pad, is a functional techdub clubber whilst "Information", with it's slacky hihats, cloudy pads and rumbling bassline is more sort of a solid dubtech engine.

Coup de maître
Groovy, fascinating, sleek and tricky. "Information" is a killer. And I do really not understand why the music stops when I write this.

Cool Techno-dub from Holger Flinsch
Nice little techno-dub oriented four-tracker. The release leads off with a warm, ambient piece full of gentle rhythms and soul. This is followed by three emotionally charged techno tracks containing steady beats and exciting rhythms with lots of bass drum and hihat. If you like this, you're sure to enjoy his "Organon" release on realaudio [raam004].
